how is rav4 compared to Toyota Corolla or Kia Cerato? just boot bigger?

planning to rent from no birds. going on a road trip to MR but is concern about the back seat, where we are planning to seat 3 skinny person. so Rav4 would be better i guess?

Rav4 or outlander or most suv drives better than corolla bah.

Bigger boot space. Though back seats more upright.

Suv handles better than most sedans

Hi guys, need some advice on going to the airport after returning a rental car at Bayswater Car rental Kewdale office.
I'm renting a car from Bayswater and planning to return the car after office hours (at night ard 9pm) on a Sat at their Kewdale office as my flight out of Perth is at midnight. As their shuttle service would have ended by then, I've to find my own way back to the airport after dropping off the car.

1) Is it advisable to return the car to the Kewdale office after office hours on a saturday and finding own transport to the airport? Or better to return to the Bayswater office in Perth CBD so it's easier to get a cab? Anyone tried this before?

2) Is there a way to reliably secure a cab or transport to the airport at night from the Bayswater Kewdale office. Any cab companies or transport companies we can contact?

Hope anyone with experience can advise. Thanks.

If you can return earlier, just do so.

There are cabs app 13 CABS and Uber which you can try to get..

How’s the Kia Carnival from Apex? Since 4 adults and 1 infant would most likely recommend a 7-seater for comfort.

Bayswater has the Mitsubishi Outlander which is listed as a 7-seater SUV. Is that correct? If it is I’ll probably just go with the Outlander.

The outlander 7 seater would be quite tight at the back.. the Kia Carnival would be a better choice..

I previously got Nissan Xtrail 7 seaters from Hertz Perth airport. 4 adults, 2 child with 1 child seat. Still good.

Hertz’s rates are quite crazy if you ask me. Will probably go with Bayswater’s largest vehicle in their fleet.

Thanks! For bayswater, if I wish to make a cancellation.. is calling them the only way?
I requested for a cancellation via email to Bayswater customer service. Was easy, they replied to my email to confirm that the booking has been cancelled.

I'm quite ok with Hertz rates, most times I get to rent an Audi Q7 for under $110/day base rate..

Look out for promo code. 10%-15% is very common and easily available. Sometime 20% or 30% if they run promotion

That’s actually quite reasonable. I did a quick check and all the rates for my trip next year was $1k+ for 6 days rental.
